I would seek out courses that are of interest of you while also researching companies of interest where you want to live.
After a few courses, I would seek out paying work or an internship to see if you like that kind of work. Doing what you like is much more important then the name of the skill. In this field, for the foreseeable future, these are well paying jobs.
Even in a university degree that are different paths to become a systems engineer, a software engineer, a computer science major, a UI/UX designed or a software developer. And no two schools have the exact same curriculum,
It took me a year of working in a company to identify what I didn't like to do, which was invaluable in picking courses to finish my degree and finding a job and career path I loved.

Today most of the computers are PC or Apple. Because computing power has increased so much these days its more of a software solution, and things have gone farther with these Amazon cloud or Microsoft Azure, some facility with zillions of PC units where the actual hardware can be simulated, then its loaded with simulated software and the person/company, instead of have a computer on site, connects to that system over the internet and the computing happens at Amazon or Microsoft.
The computing becomes a "service". And these days you can learn Azure or Amazons AMS free, mostly. If a company needs software to track operations? they rent access to business software and set it up for their needs. So you would look at what the company wants to do and try to match up computers, software or these online services to solve the problem.
Some people like doing this, finding what solutions are out there and making a simple description of what the company wants and how this or that can do what they need; they say yes and you order things, set it up; Its a very fun kind of project work thats all new.
Other people only want to code. Nothing else. Thats something we'd call "code intensive" where one needs to know programming in detail. The analyst is more of a bigger picture person, some knowledge of programming is good but its about making a system do what the customer wants. More meeting with others, talking to companies that offer solutions, making a proposal and being there to help. Ive done my share of coding. I'd rather be meeting people, light travel maybe, arranging demonstrations and moving around than sitting at the terminal for hours.
Hope this helps? Studying is and should be fun. Trying new things and studying can be difficult but so rewarding. Best of luck

The typical work day of any systems analyst is more or less towards the following points.
1. They analyze the system with respect to functionality and performance.
2. They develop and maintain system codes
3. Do debugging in case of issues and resolve them.
In general the up keep of any system becomes the responsibility of a Systems analyst.
